The Value of Harvest Data

Oct 15, 2021

By Kendra Howland, Precision Ag Specialist

The more data a person has, the more informed they are. That’s what science tells us, but what if I told you that having accurate or quality data over quantity of data means more. Having good accurate data is a key component in understanding how to use that data.

The biggest use for harvest data is knowing your breakeven point per field or overall, which can help you to make more informed choices for your operation, but more than that, harvest data is going to be a key ingredient in the food supply chain.

Most people want to know where their food is coming from, and a transparent supply chain is going to help them do just that. People want the story, and while not everyone is going to become The Peterson Farm Brothers, singing parodies about farming on their YouTube, data can do the talking for you.

Good data can help drive demand in the marketplace and drive premiums for your operation. To use data, you must be collecting accurate data. Ask your Ag Tech team about the tools that they are working on to utilize your harvest data today!
